NAME

       amavisd-new - Interface between MTA and virus scanner/content filters

SYNOPSIS

       amavisd-new [ -u userid ] [ -g groupid ] [ -c config-file ]...  [ start
       | stop | reload | debug | debug-sa | foreground ]

DESCRIPTION

       amavisd is a high-performance interface between message transfer  agent
       (MTA) and virus scanners and/or spam scanners.

       This  is  the amavisd-new incarnation of amavisd.  It is a performance-
       enhanced and feature-enriched version of the original amavisd program.

       Amavisd-new works as a SMTP proxy.  Email is fed to  it  through  SMTP,
       processed,  and  fed  back  to  the  MTA through a new SMTP connection.
       There is no buffering to disk  by  amavis,  it  will  report  that  the
       transfer  was sucessfull only after the forwarding MTA has accepted the
       message.

       It is possible to use the sendmail milter interface instead of the SMTP
       proxy method, as well.

OPTIONS

       -c configfile
              Use  the  specified  configuration  file  instead  of using run-
              parts(8) to find config files  in  /usr/share/amavis/conf.d  and
              /etc/amavis/conf.d  (this is a Debian extension to Amavisd-new).
              More than one -c option can be specified and the files  will  be
              read in the order given.

       -u userid
              Try to switch to that user id.

       -g groupid
              Try to switch to that group id.

       start  Starts amavisd-new

       stop   Stops a running amavisd-new

       reload Reloads configuration from config file (may in fact just restart
              amavisd-new)

       debug  Runs amavisd-new in debug mode

       debug-sa
